    I have been working at Macy's part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Extremely flexible ... hour long breaks.

    Cons

    HORRIBLE PAY. $8.00 p/hour for all the B.S we deal with on a daily basis? just bad. The departments get so messy especially Intimate Apparel, Petites, Women's, and Kids. Managers harass you to clean it up and no matter how much you clean it never gets better because the customers are just a-holes. They expect you to greet, ring out, assist AND clean the whole store for only $8 an hour. And don't ever ask for a raise .... you're not getting one.

    I have been working at Macy's part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Very convenient, quick and reliable.

    Cons

    It seems that your profile is not easily accessible once you submit it. Also, it takes too long to answer all the questions while filling in your profile. Some of them are repetitive questions.

    I have been working at Macy's

    Pros

    I like their selection and selection is great for clothes, while not having to wear their own merchandise (since employee discount is only 20%).

    Cons

    standing too long, I mean waterfalls coast up and down but I can't fathom why all of this paper is made.

    I have been working at Macy's

    Pros

    Flexible schedules with the ability to swap shifts with co-workers as needed. The employee discount is amazing, which is helpful for any other position if you get promoted.

    Cons

    Understaffing along with the fact that the only policy they enforce is no theft. There are no reprimands for being late or not showing up for a shift.
